Anyone Have Experience Working On A Gearmatic 8 or 9 Winch??
« on: March 28, 2018, 07:22:14 PM »
Been fighting this winch for about a week now. Winch works fine when under a small load but it seems like only the outer band is hitting the drum. What makes the inner band hit the drum? I have both bands cleaned and both are adjusted using business cards. What should I check? Should they be adjusted differently?

Seems to me it needs bleeding. Have someone help you with the lever and keep bleeding till all the air is out. Crack the line for the clutch farthest from the control lever. Keep checking the fluid level.
